FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Early morning storms Wednesday caused traffic concerns along one of the metro areas busiest roads.

Just after 3:30 A.M., M-DOT crews were called to the intersection of Luckney Road and Lakeland Drive in Flowood. That's where heavy winds and rain caused several street lights to fall and hang above the street.

There were also several traffic lights out between Flynt Drive and River Bend Place along Lakeland Drive. Flowood police officers were stationed along the route monitoring traffic.

Entergy Mississippi spokesperson Mara Hartmann said a switch failure at Lakeland Drive and north Flowood Drive caused the outages, which also extended to nearby businesses.

 Entergy crews restored power just before 8:00 A.M.
